Ok, well, to say it again:
Is there a way to do a 'svn proset svn:keywords Id file' automatically
when on runs 'svn add file'? And if there is no such feature, can it be
added on a per repository base, configureable via ~/.subversion/servers
(I assume thats the users repository "database")?

The problem I see right now, how do I retrieve the URL on svn add? It
seems 'svn info' gets it in some way, and even 'svn add' must know it
somehow. Have to dig depper in the code.

Sure, the patch was not meant for inclusion, just a hack to make our
guys happy.
